God knows how much I like to have stuff delivered. It's a multi day shopping experience. I research, check websites, make wish lists, fill baskets, un-fill baskets. A day later I make the order after two or three days it comes in the post. I'm currently awaiting Japanese seasoning and bento accessories.
When I got back from visiting Donald (as in Duck, my other boyfriend) my ordering was all about seeds. I'd come up with lists and plans before I went. They were largely inspired by the lists in book The Window-box Allotment with a few added baby varieties and some favourites of mine from last year. Some of them have Alan Titchmarsh's face on them.
For planting later this month I've got
- Carrots: Nantes 2
- Lettuce: salad bowl
- Perpetual Spinach
- Beetroot: Pronto (baby! baby!)
- Red Basil
- Runner beans: Scarlet Emperor (pictured above)
I want to sink two pots of mint into my big herb pot when it is finally assembled. I'm hoping the pots will help to contain it. Even a little. The pots themselves are repurposed yoghurt pots. Another advantage of getting it in a bigger size!
